expert says "Dehydration is not peaceful"

While George Felos continues to say that Terri Schindler-Schiavo's death by dehydration and starvation is peaceful (are you kidding??)
Dr. David Stevens says about the myth that this process is peaceful:
"Contrary to those who try to paint a picture of a gentle process, death by dehydration is a cruel, inhumane and often agonizing death" He says that most so called experts have not seen someone die under such circumstances.
But Felos continues to paint a pretty picture of Terri looking peaceful with music playing in the room and flowers, how lovely for him

If she is in the condition Felos claims, why doesn't he allow the media into the room? Why doesn't he allow cameras or tape recorders? Yes, he talks about "privacy" but then he freely discusses Terri's medical condition with the media. My opinion is that he can't have it both ways. Either bring in the media and cameras or stop talking about Terri's condition AT ALL.

CW, I don't buy into anything he says, I agree with you that he cannot have it both ways, either respect her privacy or don't. He let the media in on how peaceful she looked, he commented on her breathing and he commented on a tabby cat toy under her arm, hows that for privacy! (he may as well have taken a photo)

It is not just Felos that has commented on Terri's condition. It seems to me that Terri's parents are leading the circus. I absolutely agree that both sides should now fall silent and ask that the media, politicans and issue groups respect the family's privacy and dignity in these final days.
